The Sidekicks: Runners In The Nerved World
Buy! - (Epitaph)
The fourth album from this Columbus, OH-based band led by Steve Ciolek (who also is a member of Saintseneca) finds them continuing to evolve by moving farther away from the raucous pop-punk of their earlier releases towards a more measured and sophisticated kind of ‘90s-steeped indie-rock. Produced by Phil Ek, the album recalls bands like The Shins and Built to Spill along with bringing some occasional Superchunk punch. 1/16/2015 - Don Yates
